Foreword 

Fourteen years ago the Class of 1909 published 
the initial edition of the "Alciphronian" — the first 
annual to be published by a Boys' High graduating 
class. Since that time many annuals have been 
published, every one a monument to the school life 
o£ "ole high school". 

If, in this year's annual we have managed to keep 
up the good vi^ork started in '09, and at the same 
time have recorded the more pleasant memories of 
our high school careers, we have done well. 

Should this work in later years arouse in the 
minds of any present student or graduate, pleasant 
memories of the joyful days spent in Old High 
School — our efforts have been amply rewarded.

History of the Boys' High School 

OYS' High School of Atlanta is ranked among the highest 
and most renowned preparatory schools in the Southern 
States. Its half century of progress and prosperity since 
its establishment is unequalled by that of any similar in- 
stitution. 

The doors of the school were first thrown open in 
February, of 1872, in the old James building on White- 
hall street. The first enrollment numbered one hundred and twenty- 
five students, while the faculty consisted of three teachers only 
— Prof. W. M. Jones, who was both principal and teacher of the Senior 
Class, and Mr. E. G. Moore and Mr. W. A. Bass, who taught the Junior 
and Freshman classes, respectively. Professor Bass remained a mem- 
ber of the faculty until his death in 1911. It is largely to his faithful 
and untiring work that much of the success of the school is due. 

The first students were offered a three-year classical course in 
preparation for college work. The first graduating class, composed of 
only five students, received their diplomas July 1, 1873. During this 
year — the second in the school's existence — the enrollment had increased 
by eleven. 

A new building with additional and better facilities was secured on 
Ivy street during the year 1874. During this year the now famous Al- 
ciphronian Literary and Debating Society was formed. This society, 
still in existence, is devoted to the development of public speakers, and 
many of the South's greatest statesmen and orators received their early 
training in the society. 

From 1874 to 1883 enrollment dropped off considerably, and a crisis 
was reached in 1877, when the school was forced to close because of 
lack of appropriations. From 1876 to 1883 the school occupied the base- 
ment of the Girls' High School, after which it was removed to what are 
now the capitol grounds. The change proved unsatisfactory, however, 
and in 1884 back into the basement it went. A building on Washington 
street, across from the capitol, was secured in 1888, and the school re- 
mained in these quarters for the next two years, following which it was 
moved into the old medical college building back of the Lowry Nat- 
ional Bank. 

A permanent hotne was erected on the corner of Courtland and 
Gilmer streets in 1896, and in this building the school has remained un- 
til the present day. As soon as the school was moved into its new home 
the curriculum was extended to offer classical, business, and scientific 
courses. The new^ departments of science and business attracted such 
a large number of students that it became necessary for them to seek 
separate quarters. The business department joined that of the Girls' 
High School to form the present Commercial High School. The Tech- 
nological department, then housed in the basement with inadequate

space and facilities, was removed in 1909, and has grown into the present 
Tech High. 

The Boys' High School today is headed by Professor H. O. Smith, 
under whose leadership the school has shown remarkable progress dur- 
ing the past three years. Professor Smith has served on the faculty of 
the Boys' High School for fourteen years, having come to us in 1909. 

Boys' High maintains an exceedingly high standard of scholarship, 
making it possible for our graduates to enter any college in the coun- 
try without condition. Our athletic teams, composed only of students 
who make a required scholarship grade in all studies, are uniformly vic- 
torious. 

In 1919 a Greek class was formed by Professor P. H. Epps, head 
of the ancient language department and assistant principal, and at the 
present time a regular three year course in Greek is offered, an achieve- 
ment of which no other preparatory school in the state can boast. 

The school has always aspired to the highest ideals. Its graduates 
stand high in college and civil life. It is indeed an institution of which 
the city, state, and nation may be justly proud.

Senior Class History 




EPTEMBER, four years ago, brought a class of about 150 
freshmen through the famous portals of an equally famous 
Boys' High School. With the exception of a few beautiful 
countenances in the group, there was no hint in the faces 
of these first year men of the success and accomplishments 
the class was destined to make later on. 

But, many days have passed since that famous Septem- 
ber morning, and every day has brought new laurels to the Class of '23. 
The unwritten motto of the Class has been "Service", and every individ- 
ual in the group has contributed his part to the success of the class. 

Every student activity has looked to the Class of '23 for help and 
leadership, and have found a willing answer to their pleas for aid. The 
Class has never failed to do its part for every enterprise and activity 
in the school, and as the last days of high school life draw to a close, 
the members of the Class rejoice in the knowledge that they have helped 
to bring glory to "old high school". 

To athletics, the Class of '23 has contributed much valuable talent. 
Kells Boland, Cecil Jamison, Daniel Boone, Robert Rives, Sam Carter, 
Robert Pegram, William J. Dunn, William Noyes, Albert Whittle, Wil- 
liam Wardlaw, "Battling" Gregory, and a score of other members of the 
Class have won fame for their performance on the athletic field. 

Scholarship has found the Class in the lead again, with Gilbert 
Boggs, George Seal, James Rikard, Kells Boland, Clement Clay, and 
many more, holding the highest averages in the school. 

To literary work, the Class has made one of its highest contribu- 
tions. Elbert Roane, Kells Boland, Gilbert Boggs, Harllee Branch, Jr., 
and Francis Parker have been responsible in no small measure for the 
success of the school weekly. The Tatler. To debating the Class has 
given such stars as Gordon Smith, Paul Clement, Harry DeLaney, and 
Harllee Branch, Jr. 

In various other enterprises members of the Class have played im- 
portant roles. Never has a worthy cause failed to find support. from the 
Class of '23, and this support has undoubtedly meant the very success 
of the enterprise in many instances. 

The Class has set an example for future Boys' High classes to fol- 
low, has set a goal for underclassmen to aim at, and yet the members of 
the Class still feel that they are indebted to the famous school in which 
they have spent the past four years.

FRANK T. ALEXANDER 
"Apollo" 

Alexander came to us at Christmas time this 
year from Louisville, Kentucky — the land of 
thoroughbreds. He made a neat Christmas present, 
to say the least. He is tall, good looking, but a 
bit shy — except when he is around the women. 

Entered, '23; Inter-class Track Meet, '23; 
Dumb-bell Litprary Society, '23. 



MARION HENRY ALLEN 
"Major" 

As Major of the Boys' High Battalion during the 
past year, Marion has won much praise, both for 
his ability to command, and his sincerity in every 
undertaking. Marion is popular with faculty and 
student-body alike, and numbers his friends at 
Boys' High by the score.

JOSEPH LYNCH ANTHONY 
"Mark" 

A Greek scholar, and a Latin sl;iark, who rivals 
his teachers in the ability to translate and parse 
these "Dead" languages is Joseph Anthony. Joe 
has had many honors bestowed upon him during 
his four years at Boys' High, and has merited 
every one of them.

WILLARD T. BANDY 
"Virgin" 

Willard entered Boys' High in 1922 from some 
school in Richmond, Virginia, and has been in the 
possession of Mr. A. G. Martin ever since. Professor 
Martin has developed in him a poet, actor, and 
dramatist of note. 

Entered, '22; Plutonian, '23; Dramatic Club, '23. 



JAMES ARTHUR BANTON 
"Jamie" 

Banton has been in Boys' High a long time, and 
has spent all his time bringing glory to the school. 
He is a crack shot, being captain of the Rifle team, 
and a military genius of true worth. As Banton 
says, he realized after his first year in Boys' High 
that the Class of '23 was the class for him, and so 
he remained to graduate with it.

any man. He is exceptionally good-lookin', and 
has a disposition that makes friends for him wherever 
he may go. He is an important member of the 
Gilbert, Barnett and Minnich quartette, and it is 
rumored that he is very popular with the ladies.

JAMES LOWELL BATTLE 
"/• L." 

Battle has been one of the annual staff's biggest 
assets this year. His drawings, over which he must 
have spent many valuable hours, claim much of 
the responsibility for the success of this edition of 
the "Alciphronian". (If there happens to be any.) 
He is the best artist Boys' High has had in a long, 
long time. 

Assistant Art Editor, Alciphronian, '22; Art

R. D. BENSON 
"Rudolf" 

Benson has been mighty quiet during his career 
at Boys' High, and refuses to tell us much about 
himself. Like Napoleon, and other conquerors of 
the world, he believes in keeping people curious.

Berlin has shown remarkable energy and ability 
during his career at Boys' High, and has been able

the faculty to prohibit such a record.

GEORGE T. BIRD 
"Birdie" 

George has taken a leading part in musical work 
during his four years at Boys' High, being a member 
of both the orchestra and band. But, music has 
not claimed all of his time. He stands high in 
scholarship, and tho' he is small of stature, he 
promises to be a big man some day.

JACK BLEICH 

Here is a fellow who says little and does much. 
He is very modest, howrever, and for some unknown 
reason objects to us listing the many activities in 
which he takes part. Jack will startle the world 
some day, if he'll only quit wasting so much time 
cussing and discussing things with his friend, 
George Seal. 



LEO BLOCH 

"Orator" 

Leo graduated from Boys' High in three and half 
years — an unusual record for our school. During 
his last few months at Boys' High, Leo made 
almost every out-of-town football game, usually 
carrying several fellow-students with him in his 
car. His oratorical ability won recognition for him.

RICHARD NELSON BLOCK 
"Dick" 

Dick entered Boys' High from Ohio at the begin- 
ning of his senior year, and in nine short months 
accomplished more than some fellows have been 
able to do in four years. In athletics, and scholar- 
ship as well, he has made an enviable record. He 
will go back to his "Beautiful Ohio" in the fall to 
enter Dennison Institute.

GILBERT HILLHOUSE BOGGS, JR. 
"Charlie" 

This is the fellow who has become famous of 
late as a financier and collector. "Charlie" has 
kept himself busy during the past few months 
collecting annual fees, and has made a good job 
of it, too. He is Class Valedictorian, but has found 
time from his studies to take a leading part in all 
the leading activities of the school.

tions have found in Kells a real leader.

LEROY J. BOONE

Another one of those modest fellows, who refuses 
to tell us the activities in which he has taken part 
during his high school career. He is red-headed, 
but lacks the temper that usually goes with that 
color of hair. Boykin is well liked by all his class-

WALKER PATTERSON INMAN BRANDON 
' 'Sheik" 

Inman has been everything from a corporal in 
military training to a saxophonist in the band 
during his four years at Boys' High. He has the 
distinction of having ridden in more different 
kinds of automobiles during the past four years 
than any other student in the school. A fine fellow, 
he is, and loved by all his classmates.

SAM CARTER 

"Grandpa" 

Sam developed into a great athlete during his

hardest lesson assignments, seemingly with ease. 

Entered, '22; Honor Roll, '22-'23. 



PAUL AUGUSTUS CLEMENT 
"P. Augustus" 

Old "P. Augustus" would have set the school 
on fire with his brilliancy if he could have only 
stayed awake for a few minutes during his four 
years at Boys' High. As it was, he made the honor 
roll, without even exerting himself. As a debater,

WILLIAM J. DUNCAN 
"Dunk" 

Duncan entered in '21, and his long, lithe, and

he will end in a circus side-show — as the long,

WILLIAM P. DUNN 
"Pee Wee" 

"Pee Wee" has become Paul Clement's boon 
companion during the past year, but has managed 
to overcome his friend's tendency to sleep always, 
much to the joy of his classmates. He is a like- 
able fellow, and is especially popular with certain 
young ladies in our fair metropolis, according to 
rumors.

W. C. EDWARDS 

Edwards is the cousin of our friend, O. H. 
Williamson, but has managed to keep it a secret

SAMUEL EVINS 
"Sam" 

Greek, Sam, and Mr. Epps never could "hit it 
up" to perfection, tho' our friend and classmate 
studied his hardest on the ungodly language. 
Someday Sam will be a guide, leading visitors 
through the big City Auditorium, for he knows 
more nooks and corners in the famous building 
than any other person in Atlanta.

"Chick" accomplished a seemingly impossible 
task during his four years at Boys' High — he was 
friend, advisor, and foe of the faculty, all at the 
same time. Without the help of this fellow, the 
records in the military department would have 
been eternally mussed up. A most popular fellow, 
but withal a very modest classmate.

HYMAN FREEMAN 

A little man with a big heart and a huge will. 
Freeman has little to say on any subject, but no 
one does more real thinking. He is quiet and un- 
assuming — but, at the same time, gets results. 



HENRY JACKSON FULLBRIGHT, JR. 
"Halfbright" 

Try as we would, we could not make our friend 
"Halfbright" turn in a list of the activities in which 
he has taken part. He is small in statue, and 
exceedingly modest over his many accomplishments. 
He is the originator of the title "pinch-hitter" 
for Olney Rankin.

THOMAS P. GOVAN 
'•T. P." 

Tom's work as assistant advertising manager of 
the Alciphronian was one of his greatest successes. 
His winsome smile won friends for him amongst 
his classmates, and made enemies of the faculty 
members. "T. P." was one of the liveliest members 
of the class, and featured in many of the activities 
of the school.

JAMES BANKS UNDERWOOD NEVIN, JR.

Jimmie holds the record in Boys' High for having 
passed up more subjects in one term than any 
other fellow that has ever been enrolled at our

four courses in English, two in history, and a 
number of others during his senior year; and 
seemed insulted when anyone would ask him how 
he did it. He is a regular sheik with the fairer sex, 
and is somewhat of a "king" around the home 
of a young lady, known as "Bessie."

Stacy is probably the liveliest and most unlucky 
member of the senior class. He was continually 
in trouble with the professors, but numbers many 
of the instructors as his friends just the same. 
When he harnesses some of the power that is 
contained in his super-energy, he's going to truly

WILLIAM ASBURY WARD, JR. 

■■W. A." 

This Ward happens not to be a kinsman to 
Eugene, but is a lover of real dramatic art the 
same as his red-headed namesake. When Eugene 
Ward goes to the Forsyth, W. A. usually goes to 
the Bonita. He finds much pleasure telling his 
classmates all about the show the following day, 
and is one of the Bonita's greatest advertisers. 

Alpha Sigma Pi; Captain, R. O. T. C, '21-'22;

WILLIAM CLARKE WARDLAW, JR. 
"Wee Willie" 

Wardlaw is a scholar, and an athlete of no mean 
ability. He was a member of our swimming team 
during the past season, and his work aided much 
in bringing the City Prep Championship to Boys' 
High. As assistant business manager of the annual, 
he should get much of the credit for the success 
of the publication, if perchance there is any.

ALBERT WHITTLE 
"Al" 

"Al" ranks high as a sheik around Boys' High, 
and has all the ear-marks of a "dancin' fool." 
School and studies never bothered this fellow, who 
always found time to attend the dances and other 
social functions of the younger set in Atlanta. 

Swimming Team, '22-'23; Manager, Swimming 
Team, '23; Chairman, Senior Dance Committee,

JOHN YOUNG 

' 'Johnnie" 

■ Young first won fame in Atlanta as a Boy Scout, 
winning many of the highest honors that can 
come to a member of the Scout organization. At 
the end of his sophomore year, "Johnnie" left 
Boys' High for North Carolina, where he attended 
school during the '21-'22 term. At the beginning 
of this year, he was back at Boys' High, where he 
received a warm welcome from his many friends 
in the school.

Sunrise 

We were standing on the summit of a snow capped mountain high ; 
Around, the loftier mountains towered upward toward the sky ; 
Each leaf and blossom spangled with the dew-drops, pearly white, 
Reflecting back a rainbow as they caught the earliest light. 
The whispering trees were stirring as they breathed the wind of morn, 
And across the far-off mountain ridges the golden light was born. 



Sunset 

We descended from the mountain toward the fields of golden grain, 

Breathed the fragrance of the wild flowers ; saw the flocks upon the 
plain ; 

Saw the misty river flowing past twixt its banks of mossy green. 

Saw its waters, clear, reflecting all the sunset's varied sheen ; 

Saw the clouds of royal purple and the glory of the gold. 

Saw the blue and crimson banners flutter outward, fold on fold. 

We drew nearer to the village, saw the home lights gleaming far ; 

While above the fading sunset, shone a silver, evening star. 

WILLARD T. BANDY, '22.

Frederick Graham Matheson 

When Graham's father, Dr. K. G. Matheson, 

accepted the presidency of Drexel Institute in 

Philadelphia in 1922, he left Atlanta — and Boys' 

High lost one of her most popular and promis- 

; ( ing students. Graham had completed three } 

years work, and would have graduated with the 
Class of '23. During his three years at Boys' 
High he held many of the highest offices in the 
school, and his classmates bestowed many hon- 
ors on him. Our loss was Haverford's gain!

Senior Class Poem 



Oh mighty school, long hast thou watch'd with Time 

From thy hoar walls, thy children pass and rise 

To fame, true issue of thy nurture wise. 
Through generations vanish'd. Light sublime 
From thee illuminates the path they climb : 

The joys they've had, their fresh'ning zeal, the ties, 

Thy halls of learning tow'ring to the skies. 
Thy children celebrate in endless rhyme. 
But yesterday it seems when thou did'st take 

Us, class of three and twenty, by the hand — 
So fleet the years have fled. And now the day 
When thy protecting arms we must forsake 

Is come, "Oh Lord, our God, make firm our stand 

"For Truth and Right; Exalt Boys' High," we pray. 

DICK BLOCK.

Junior Class History

X 




HE Class of '24 has long since caught the spirit of Boys' 
High, and for the past three years has held a "shoulder to 
the wheel" — always pushing for the glory of ole high 
school. 

The members of this Class, who have spent three years 
in preparation, will enter next year upon the inheritance of 
their Senior life — and if the past is any key to the future, 

the Class of '24 is destined to be one of the greatest ever graduated 

from our famous school. 

To our friends and fellow students in the lower classes, we send a 
plea for aid in making next year the best in the history of Boys' High !

Sophomore Class History 

wo years have only served as a starter for tfie members of 
the Class of '25 ! What success we have made in the past, 
is only a fore-runner of the success we predict for our class 
in the future. 

With two years still left for us to serve Boys' High, 
the members of our class have definite plans for bringing 
new glory to our school. 

We have in the Class much talent, and this talent and ability is 
divided amongst many various types of high school work. Such schol- 
ars as Hall, Hill, and McGinty are a credit to any school ; while ath- 
letes of the caliber of McGinty and Boland are certain to win fame for 
themselves and their class before many years pass. 

In James Jacobs, and Dean Rusk, we feel that we have two orators 
that could hold their own anywhere. But, athletes, orators, and schol- 
ars are not the only features that our class may proudly claim. Instead, 
we have contributed much to every activity of the school during the 
past two years. The school paper, the glee club, the dramatic club, the 
literary societies — all have found support in the Class of '25.

Freshman Class History 

ITH only nine months of our high school careers over, the 
Class of '26 has already caught the spirit of ole Boys' High, 
and all things point to a decided success for the class. There 
is some little doubt as to whether we will finish our entire 
four years of high school in the famous building in which 
we have received our first year's instruction ; for there is a 
possibility of the new S'enior Boys High School being com- 
pleted before the day of our scheduled graduation. 

But, whether the remainder of our high school days are spent here 
or elsewhere, there is one thing certain — and that is, that there are many 
loyal Boys High supporters in the Class of '26. 

We have enjoyed the true high school spirit that we have lived 
within for the past nine months, and are looking forward with great 
expectations to future years of success and service for Boys High.

Military Review 




)^ 



HE military department this term enjoyed what might truth- 
fully be termed its "banner year". Practically all of our 
pupils were military students, and the work of the depart- 
ment was better organized and conducted than it has been 
in years. 

Colonel Little, head of the Atlanta Public Schools' Mil- 
itary Unit, along with high officials of the Fourth Corps 
Area R. O. T. C. Division, frequently reviewed our battalion ; and al- 
ways had a word of praise for the fine type of work being done at 
Boys' High. 

Captain Miller, Sergeant Perry, and Student-Major Allen deserve 
much credit for the showing our battalion made in competitive drills, 
parades, and reviews during the past year.

Athletic Review 

HE school year, 1922-23, has been a banner one for Boys' 
High as far as athletics and sports are concerned. We have 
won only two championships, it is true ; and have lost 
many an athletic encounter, but the year has been cram- 
full of glory for our teams. 

Where we have lost a game, we have shared in the 
glory ; for if ever Boys' High turned out teams that acquit- 
ted themselves as favorably as did the teams this year, the writer has 
never heard mention of it. With practically little or no veteran material 
in any sport, our coaches have rounded out squads that comi-are favor- 
ably with any in the city or state. Seasons opened with dismal failure, 
our only prospect, but before many games had been played failure was 
turned into decided success. 

What our players have lacked in experience and physical prowess, 
has been made up in sheer "grit". Sport writers all over Georgia have 
commented on the fighting spirit of our teams this year, and the school 
has been proud to claim such outfits as her own. 

The state championship in basketball, and the city championship in 
swim,ming have come to our teams as deserved rewards. But, in sports 
where we missed the championship, we made an enviable record this 
year. The best judges of the sort of teams we had are our opponents — 
ask them !

Football Review 

T the beginning of the football season in 1922, things looked 
extremely bad for Boys' High. Prospects for turning out 
a football team were very dark. With the exception of Ce- 
cil Jamison and Kells Boland, the entire varsity squad of 
1921 had graduated, and very few boys in the school had 
ever had any gridiron experience. 

The school realized the great handicap that Boys' High 
was to suffer, so when Coach Winkler sounded the first call for foot- 
ball, over a hundred willing candidates responded. These fellov/s work- 
ed with unusual zeal for three or four weeks, and under expert coach- 
ing, a football team was finally shaped up, the two veterans serving as 
a nucleus around which the 1922 squad was built. 

Time for practice was short, and the first game of the season was 
played before a squad had been picked definitely. This game, against 
LaGrange, resulted in a disastrous defeat for our eleven, but the team 
was not the least bit daunted. 

Our team suffered defeat after defeat, but always won the praise 
of fans and sport writers for their "never-say-die" spirit and their earn- 
estness in battle. The second game of the season, with University 
school, proved conclusively that what our team lacked in weight and 
experience they made up in grit. Our plucky little eleven circled Uni- 
versity's line for two touchdowns, a seemingly impossible feat. For- 
ward passes became the main reliance of the little squad, and heavier 
and more experienced teams found a relentless foe in the Boys' High 
eleven. 

The final game of the season with Tech High made the Purple and 
White team famous. The Tech High squad outweighed our players 
many pounds to the man, and the Smithy team was made up largely of 
veteran players. Sport writers predicted a disastrous defeat for Boys' 
High, and betting odds were all against us. 

But, the result of the battle was far different from, what had been 
expected. Tech High won it is true, but by three points only, and then 
after the most desperate fight her team had ever encountered. The 
winning three points were made by Tech High in the last three min- 
utes of play on a beautiful drop-kick from about the fifteen yard line 
Line-bucks, end runs, fake plays, and every other line of offensive by 
the Junior Smithies had been of no avail against the small but plucky 
Purple Hurricane. It was Tech High's game, but our victory!

Basketball Review 



^ 




HE basketball season this year was a most successful one 
for Boys' High. Out of seventeen games with the lead- 
ing teams of the state, we won twelve victories, practically 
all of them by a big margin of points. Our five defeats, on 
the other hand, were lost to our opponents with small dif- 
ferences in the number of points scored by the two teams, 
two of the defeats going as victories to opposing fives by 

one-point margins, another by a two-point lead, and the other two with 

margins almost as small. 

Pat Stevens, captain of our squad, was the outstanding star in the 
city and state prep circles, being the highest individual scorer in the 
City Prep League, and ranking high in state-wide circles also. The 
other members of the squad were equally well-known by their perform- 
ances on the court. 

In the regular prep league championship race, we finished third, 
with 463 points to our credit as compared with 303 for opposing teams. 

The G. I. A. A. tourney at Macon, lasting three days, brought more 
glory on the team. Our squad faced three of the best quintets in the 
state, and won all three contests, giving us the state championship. 
First, we defeated the Monroe A. & M., then we took on our ancient 
rivals, Tech High. Dope had it that Tech High should win by a neat 
margin, but when the smoke of battle had cleared away Boys' High was 
hanging onto the big end of a 28-24 score. The next day we met Lanier 
High, the undefeated champions of Georgia for two years, and in a 
hectic struggle that made nervous-wrecks of all spectators, we handed 
them a neat little defeat, winning 25-23, much to the surprise of every- 
one. This victory gave us the undisputed championship of the state, 
and closed our basketball season in a flame of glory.

Baseball Review 

UR baseball nine was the puzzle of the prep league this 
year. Practically all of the 1922 team had graduated, and 
things looked almost as bad at the beginning of the season 
for us as they had in football, during the previous fall. But 
Coach David and Duby White, ex-Boys' High player him- 
self, managed to build up one of the strongest teams in the 
prep league by the latter part of the baseball season. 

The first four games we played resulted in victories for our oppon- 
ents, and sport writers and fans, predicted a disastrous season for the 
Purple and White nine. But, the worm turned, and in the very next 
game Boys' High won her first victory of the season over Decatur High. 
Tech High was defeated by us in the first game, in which we met our 
ancient rivals, and things began to look decidedly different. Six suc- 
cessive games were chalked up as six successive victories for the Boys' 
High team, and sport writers and fans began to scratch their heads in 
wonder. Where disastrous defeat had once stared our team in the face, 
clouds of success were now evident, and people began to believe that 
Boys' High couldn't lose a game, no matter who her opponent. 

Then the worm turned again, and our team lost two games in suc- 
cession. The next game was won by us by a three-point lead over 
G. M. A., and the next two we lost. The final count of the season gave 
us seven victories out of fourteen encounters, one of the defeats being 
a post-season game at that. 

Thomas H. Pitts, owner of the soft drink emporium at Five Points, 
offered a beautiful loving cup to the winner of two out of three games 
between Boys' High and Tech High, the ancient rivals of the City Prep 
League. In the first game against the Junior Smithies Boys' High was 
returned victor, in the next Tech High. This evened the count and 
necessitated a post-season game to decide the winner of the cup. The 
third game, a pitcher's duel all the way through, was won by Tech 
High, 2-0. This gave our rivals possession of the cup, but, when details 
of the game were printed, it was readily seen that the defeat was not so 
bad after all. McGahee, pitching for Boys' High, pitched a no-hit game, 
while his opponent, Speer, on the mound for Tech High, gave up two 
hits. This game, and the performance of McGahee will long be remem- 
bered in and around prep baseball circles.

Track Review 

HE season of 1923 was Boys' High most successful track 
season, since the inauguration of the sport in the school 
many years ago. With Coach C. S. Ward, an old Emory 
University track star and holder of many records, direct- 
ing the destinies of the team ; and with as many candidates 
as we had, there was little chance of failure. 

The showing of our relay teams were probably the lead- 
ing feature of the track season as far as Boys' High was concerned. 
Entered in three relay contests our team came through with one victory, 
one second, and one third place. Quite a dandy record, when the teams 
against whom our squad fought are considered. 

Our team was entered in the Tech Relays, the biggest track event 
the South has seen in a long, long time. In the 440 yard relay, our team, 
composed of Kontz, Boone, Jamison, Rives and Tankersley (alternate), 
nosed in ahead, and were awarded medals. The next relay in which 
our team competed was in an "A" class contest in the same Tech re- 
lays. The team was just a little behind the leaders here and was placed 
third. 

In the city prep meet our relay team held the lead for three laps, 
only to lose it by a few inches to Tech High on the home stretch. The 
finish was so close and exciting that Boys' High was given almost as 
much glory as the winning team. 

Our cinder path warriors won second place in the City Prep meet, 
with totals from all events considered. This sort of a showing isn't bad 
for a team of tracksters, who have had little or no experience before — 
and if predictions mean anything at all. Boys' High is going to win a 
lot of championships on the track in future seasons.

Swimming Review 




7A 



HE B. H. S. Swimming Team "ran wild" this year, winning 
every meet in which it entered — and finally taking the City 
Prep Championship, with a score just twice as large as 
that of the nearest competitor. 

"Bill" Noyes, the captain, was easily the outstanding 
prep tank star in local circles ; scoring a total of 40^^ points 
in the three meets in which he participated. Other mem- 
bers of the squad did nearly as well, making the Boys' High team prac- 
tically immune to defeat. 

To Coach Crowder is due much praise for the showing of the squad 
this season. From November 14 until the end of the school term, he 
worked untiringly, putting his "all" into turning out a championship 
team. His efforts resulted in much glory for "ole high school" ; and 
to him the entire school votes sincere thanks. 

The scores in the City Prep Meet, held May 14th, at East Lake 
Country Club, are proof enough of the fine team that represented Boys' 
High this year. Here they are: 

Boys' High, 40 points; Tech High, 20 points; G. M. A., 16 points; 
Marist, 5 points.

Prophecy 

Leo J. Block, Prophet. 

HIS was the first class reunion I had attended, being so 
busy amassing my millions in the great city of New York. 
I was, of course, very glad of the opportunity to greet all 
of the good fellows of the Class of '23. 

When my train pulled in at the station, I was met by 
a welcoming delegation and I was indeed honored. Head- 
ing the delegation was the mayor's secretary, my next- 
door-neighbor in classes at Boys' High, "Dick" Block. He apologized 
for the inability of His Honor, the mayor, to be present and welcome 
me personally, but explained that His Honor was addressing the mem- 
bers of the Woman's Club on "Eighteen Hundred Divorce Causes." 
The mayor, I later learned, was Tropp — another of the '23's. Other 
dignitaries in the delegation that met me were Berlin, U. S. Senator 
from the State of Georgia ; Freeman, who had a flourishing pencil busi- 
ness — all personnae ; Anthony, who had become a banker (of furnaces) 
in an uptown building ; and Noyes, who held the important position of 
Municipal Life Saver — whose task it was to save strangers from drown- 
ing in Atlanta's street puddles. Branch was hanging on the outside of 
the crowd, anxiously awaiting an opportunity to interview me for the 
Journal, on which paper he was serving as a "cub reporter". 

As soon as I had settled in my hotel, I called up Sharp's Detective 
Agency and had Sharp, an old classmate, personally trace all of the 
Class of '23. Imagine my varied feelings when three days later I re- 
ceived the following report: 

Dear Sir: 

Per your request, I have personally traced the members of the 
Class of '23, and submit herewith the following report of my findings, 
all of which I know to be authentic : 

King has becoine so interested in Greek that he has opened a Greek 
restaurant. 

Lewis is on the stage as a concert singer, and reports say he is a 
distinct hit. 

Rouland, depending on his high school training, is the "alibi ex- 
pert" at the local gas company. 

Cheatham is Decatur street's most affluent and fluent pawnbroker. 

"Beefy" Dunn is a torturer of mankind — a dentist. 

Katz is a Rabbi, but is seriously thinking of retiring. 

Benson, using the fictitious name of "Harold Hollingsworth", is 
author of the famous book, "His Wife's Lies". 

Bird is the manipulator of a flute in the World's Largest Symphony 
Orchestra. 

Boykin, inheriting a peculiar liking for court life, is subpoena serv- 
er in the Fulton County Superior Court. 

Brandon now heads the Order of Efficient Street Sweepers, and 
it is rumored that his re-election to this honorary office is certain. 

Duncan, light fingered as ever, has had his pictures spread broad- 
cast over the land on bills bearing in large type the word "Reward!" 

"Pee Wee" Dunn, as a Russian dancer, is rated as a high kicker.

Why? 



(Offered with apologies to nobody.) 

Why are the dolls with the baby stare, 

With the dimpled cheeks and the cute bobbed hair, 

Who look so sweet, so pure, so stainless. 

Almost absolutely brainless? 

Oh yes, they know how to wear the clothes. 
How to rouge their lips and roll their hose; 
But when it comes to common sense, 
^. They show themselves most hopelessly dense. ' . . 

Why also are the homeliest dames. 
Whose mugs to beauty have no claims. 
On whom to look gives the eyes a pain. 
Possessors of the most useful brain? 

Oh, Nature! Why dost thou disguise. 
With beauty that which empty lies, 
While that which isn't with beauty blest 
Thou dost with common sense invest? 

—ROBERT KING EVATT HULL.

book have not been wasted. 

But, if you have looked over the pages of this 
latest volume of the "Alciphronian", and still feel 
that there is nothing of true interest contained 
therein, won't you kindly do us the favor and grant 
us the consolation of believing that we have put

The Advisability of Going to College 

By Cecil Jamison. 

OME one has said, "No car is complete without its tool 
box". Neither is a human machine complete without the 
fine tool of a college education. This question of going 
to college has been long since settled in the minds of most 
people. There is no doubt that each year a larger percent- 
age gradually realize this fact. 

Let us consider for a moment the commercial value of 
a college education. Not even the most ardent supporter of non-col- 
lege education can deny that most large firms not only want but de- 
mand that their executives be college bred, and that men with college 
educations are given precedence in applications for all positions. 

Some contend that not all great or successful men have had col- 
lege training. True enough, but these same men achieved success in 
spite of the lack of this training. They are always first to urge col- 
lege for others. If a man succeeds without the educational equipment 
of a college training, how much more successful he would be with it ! 

Not only should we educate ourselves for financial benefit, but also 
for the joy that knowledge brings. This after all is the main consider- 
ation, for nothing is comparable to the pleasure of being able to read 
and speak on a vast multitude of subjects. 

In this day and time when education is within the reach of all, it 
is imperative that we take advantage of the opportunity, and develop 
our minds in the institutions of higher learning.

Atlanta Rotarians Advise Boys to Remain 
in Schools 

TO THE BOYS OF ATLANTA: 

We, the members of the Atlanta Rotary Club, interested always in the 
growth, development, training and success of the boys of our city and 
of the nation, wish to urge every boy in the city to take advantage of 
the school opportunities presented and to remain in school. 

TO STAY IN SCHOOL means financial success. The average earn- 
ings of the boy who completes high school is more than $20,000 in ex- 
cess of the earnings of the boy who drops out of school at the close of 
his grammar school career. 

TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL means enjoyment of the highest and best 
things in life. The boy who remains in high school until he finishes 
and has the advantage of a college education will receive from art, 
literature, from association with men and women the greater pleasures 
and greater happiness than those who surrender their educational ad- 
vantages and start to work too early. \ ( 

TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL means the ability to become a social lead- 
er. Life is made up of our associations with our fellows. For a boy to 
complete his high school and college education gives him the opportun- 
ity of social leadership that is unexcelled. 

TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL means business leadership. While now 
and then a few of our greatest business men may rise from the ranks 
of the uneducated, these are the exceptions and not the rule. 92 per cent 
of all the great and successful business men are those who have at least 
acquired high school training. 

TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL means to double and treble your efficiency 
as a great social and political unit in our nation's life. It means serv- 
ice above self. It means that your life will be multiplied in usefulness 
of those round about you. 

Believing and relying on these great fundamental facts, the Atlanta 
Rotary Club urges you and all the boys of our city, to keep s ep with 
the progress of the ages, and to keep step with the best educational 
thoughts, and to remain in the high school.

To Marry Dancer 

Rcger Wolfe Kahn, the gifted jt. 
Otto Kahn, banker, and art patron, 
became a professional orchestra leader ^ 
the age of seventeen, is marrying into his 
profession. He has announced his engage- 
ment to Virginia Franck, a young Long 
Island girl of modest means who has 
made a name for herself as a dancer. 

She made this name against the pro- 
tests of Roger Wolfe. Last year she told 
him she was going to Paris to appear on 
the stage there. He objected and for- 
bade her to go. She went just the same, 
and he followed, her two months later to 
find that she was dancing under the 
name of Regor. 

Young Mr. Kahn is now learning to 
fly. He can pilot a plane alov^e but Iv* is, 
as yet, no Lindbergh.
